Happy New Year!!

Well, here's hoping you started off 2011 right and that the year brings you all good things!  We're also hoping you're going to join us again this month and start working on those cards for next Christmas - there's no time like the present to get a head start!

January Challenge - We're going to make it easy this month because we just want people to play along, so the challenge is... 

Anything goes! 

Yes, you heard it right - anything!  Get out those scraps or the new stash you had to have this year, but never got the chance to use.  Just start creating!

Take a look at what our new design team has created for you as inspiration!

This was my version of one of Kristina Werner's
Holiday series cards that you can see HERE!

*Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of JANUARY! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks!

***Also, if at least 20 people create 5 cards we'll pick a second winner!***

Keep your eyes out throughout the month for more reveals and intros to our new team members as well!  Looking forward to seeing more cards soon, so get your mojo on!

Colleen and Lesley -

Would you mind e-mailing me at I would like to set up a Swap-Bot Group Christmas Cards All Year Long 2011 following your monthly themes. Please let me know if you are interested and I will take care of the swaps. Just want to add your blog link to the description.
